When Keystone was founded in 2002, it was designed as a firm that would embrace remote working and therefore eradicated the need for large offices and daily commuting. This meant that the firm has always had a very low carbon footprint in comparison to many businesses.
As part of our journey to become more sustainable we enlisted an external third party to calculate not only our annual emissions but all the emissions since the business was founded 20 years earlier.
Using the guidance and methodology outlined by the GHG protocol, recognised as the global standard framework for measuring and managing greenhouse gas emissions, it was identified that Keystone Law Ltd had generated over 2000 tonnes of carbon which was offset to achieve a carbon neutral status and going forward the firm continues to measure and offset annually.
Through the launch of our Keystone Species initiative, we have been able to offset all of the emissions generated by supporting projects internationally and have also invested in domestic projects which seek to protect the most important part of the ecosystems.
